Riviera Elementary Workshop

  • It was such an honor to have you and your child/children decorate Happy Hats for kids in hospitals on Wednesday, October 23, 2014. I had so much fun with all of you and I know your positive energy and smiles of the children rubbed off on all the hats. It would be wonderful if you could also join us at our celebration of our 23rd year of serving more than 800,000 children. Thank you for being BIG HEROES to our little hospitalized heroes.
